Last Words

I'm sure no one reading this will be surprised that the last words I am quoting come from Troy Davis, spoken yesterday evening.

Final words

Davis' final words are reported as follows:
“ I'd like to address the MacPhail family. Let you know, despite the situation you are in, I'm not the one who personally killed your son, your father, your brother. I am innocent. The incident that happened that night is not my fault. I did not have a gun. All I can ask ... is that you look deeper into this case so that you really can finally see the truth. I ask my family and friends to continue to fight this fight. For those about to take my life, God have mercy on your souls. And may God bless your souls.[124] ”

From Wikipedia

I am shocked that Anmesty petitions, even a message from the Pope, plus all the other requests were not enough to change the minds of those responsible. I wonder who the legal system in Georgia is accountable to. Maybe to the voters in Georgia? Who employs them and pays their wages? Authority comes from somewhere and is paid for somehow.
